One of the most popular seasonings of all time, garlic is used in almost every type of dish. Granulated or powdered garlic is useful for flavoring soups, sauces, meats and vegetables or for garlic bread. Although much of the garlic available is imported, we buy only California grown garlic. It is slightly more expensive, but the extra flavor and aroma more than make up for the extra expense. Use granulated or powdered garlic for instant flavor, or use minced or chopped garlic in slow-cooking soups and stews. Please note: the garlic powder listed here is an extra-fine grind, almost like talcum powder. The granulated is a free-flowing grind which has the consistency of salt or sugar. Supermarket garlic powder is usually what we call granulated.
